ACNW Strassenlage '22

Ridge Motorsports Park, Road Course

About this event

Join Audi Club Northwest at The Ridge Motorsports Park on Saturday and Sunday, August 21-22, for Strassenlage 2021. 

Strassenlage (handling in German) brings the opportunity to apply the experience and skills you've been developing all summer at one of the most fun and challenging road courses in the Pacific Northwest! Whether you sign up for both days, or can only make it to one, there will be lots of track time with instructors available throughout. For those drivers not yet signed-off "solo" we'll pair you with an instructor automatically. If you're a "solo" driver but looking for some tips to help you keep progressing, there will be instructors available for you as well (be sure to make that selection during registration).

All participants must be at least 16 years of age and have previously attended a Driver Skills Clinic. During Registration you'll be able to select your skill level...let's all agree to be honest on this part! Attendance at a Driver Skills event by another car club (BMW, Porsche) may be acceptable. Please check with the Event Master to confirm your eligibility. 

Instructor Rides are planned for Saturday and Sunday. Instructor Rides are thrilling as you experience what it feels like to go fast on a race track.  Helmets are required and we will provide them.

Audi Club North America membership is required for this event.  Drivers who are not yet members, or who need to renew an existing membership, should handle that using the Audi Club North America website <https://audiclubna.org/join/>. If you're on the fence about whether it's worth it, don't be! Not only does that membership open up access to lots of great track events in the NW and beyond, but it also brings discounts on parts and service from local businesses as well as a 6% discount on most new Audis!

Registration includes lunch. Guest lunches are available as well. Note: When meals are a part of our events, ACNW will attempt to accommodate special dietary requirements if requested. However, meals are provided by third parties and circumstances may not always enable ACNW or its vendors to meet every special dietary need.

On the morning of the event, you will take your car through the Tech Line process (see below) in order to be allowed on track.  However, completion of the Safety Inspection Checklist form, including the second signature, should be completed PRIOR to getting to the Tech Line process.

Tech Line Process:

Prior to getting in line for Tech:

  • Visit Registration to check in and get your registration packet (with event car numbers)
  • Ensure your vehicle meets all areas of the Safety Inspection Checklist form, particularly removal of all lose items from the cabin and trunk
  • Apply event car numbers to car exterior (outside rear windows, if possible, on both sides)
  • Complete Safety Inspection Checklist form with car number

During Tech:

  • Get in line with your vehicle at designated area
  • Stay in your vehicle and be prepared to participate in the process as directed by Tech Line staff
  • Provide your completed Safety Inspection Checklist form (this includes 2 signatures) when requested
  • Upon successful completion of the process, you’ll be given your final event sticker that signifies your vehicle is cleared for entry on track. You will place this sticker in the center of your car's windshield, at the very top.
  • Return to your parking spot and be prepared for the mandatory Driver’s meeting
